"My daughter has been dancing at Michelle's Studio of Dance in East Bridgewater for over 11 years now. As she enters her final year with the studio I am thankful for all she has learned. Michelle's teaches the girls not only to dance but also about self esteem, teamwork and friendship. The year-end recital
is an event we look forward to each year and every year. It has been a truly rewarding experience
for both my daughter and I." (L. Mitchell Hingham, MA)
